what users should I have in phpmyadmin?

Hi everything, in phpmyadmin I have a "Any" server and a "root" user, I deleted the others, I belive the any user doesent have a password, I dont know if I need that user, can I delete it? I have a password on root, I put a password on it in the privilages section and I edited the config file, I kinda would like to know if it really does have a password, is there a way to tell or test. thanks

I think, with the forum search you can find some threads about this...

thanks for the info, also Iam reading the faq on how to secure phpmyadmin so its not open to the public, I cant really fix this, I did what the instructions say, but it doesent let me log in, the login box does come up tho, just I cant log in with my user and password :cry:

Silly question, but sometimes we all forget the minor stuff..
Did you edit /.../..../phpmyadmin/config.inc.php to use the new password?

yes ofcourse, I dont see any other way to do it, was I supose to somehow do it thought phpmyadmin and then edit the config file?
Also, what databases do I need? what ones can I delete?
